A CAFE FOR ALL
After so much hard work and incredible support from local companies The Handlebar Cafe opened its doors for business in September 2019. The brainchild of young people with an interest in Architecture, coordinated by SPUD. The six year project created a cycle café in a unique location. We are delighted to welcome you to this amazing new building and what will surely become a fantastic new social hub for Winchester.
Come and enjoy an amazing array of gorgeous cakes, teacakes, healthy snacks; as well as locally sourced sausage rolls, pies and pastries plus vegetarian and vegan options, all topped off with our
triple certified coffee, tea or cold drinks. We also stock Jude's Ice cream and much more! We offer healthy breakfasts of porridge, yoghurts with granolas, along with our very popular bacon rolls.
Please note that towards the end of the day we only offer a takeaway service.
Dogs are welcome on leads.
Please note that only food purchased on the premises is to be consumed here.
There is no customer WIFI in the cafe. we want you to connect with the environment and each other rather than devices.
